06:31:28 <ynpvisitorCC> Joe are you here?
06:31:53 <ynpvisitor3> Yes CC
06:42:32 <ynpvisitor3> I entered Grand earlier and deleted it, based on the following Rside and Daisy plumes it could not have been Grand, so disregard the Grand prediction
06:47:52 <ynpvisitor102> Much better view this morning than last night.
06:49:47 <Kat> Hi all!

07:22:54 <Kat> Hi Dave
07:23:28 <CraigC> AL
07:23:49 <CraigC> or is it Big? I have a hard time sometimes
07:24:54 <CraigC> it was AB, there is AL
07:25:17 <ynpvisitor102> Looks like the VC is set up for the day when they come to work.:thumbsup: Jim would be proud :)
07:29:57 <Kat> I do too Craig - but it was AB then AL :)
07:31:05 <Kat> It's really hard to see when there's a lot of steam from Improbabale
07:31:05 <Joe> this mornings Aurum https://youtu.be/sM0ZWp2krO0
07:31:12 <Cooper> Thx
07:31:56 <Kat> Indeed! Nice Joe
07:47:19 <Dave from B™> 48" of snow in Browning Montana...that's crazy for this time of year
07:50:20 <Kat> That's a lot of snow! Wow!
07:51:48 <Dave from B™> Just 2 days of rain for us but our first frost comes tonight
07:52:13 <Kat> Whats the temp there Dave?
07:53:10 <Kat> Cold in the basin...
07:54:00 <Dave from B™> 33 this morning
07:54:30 <ynpvisitor60> :)
07:54:38 <Dave from B™> Highs 42-61 this week
07:55:57 <Kat> Not bad! It's actually starting to cool down in Florida. I love this weather
07:57:19 <Kat> AL
08:01:43 <Mike J> Getting the time of year for us in the southern climes to start bragging
08:02:09 <ynpvisitor3> :p
08:02:23 <Kat> haha Mike -true!
08:02:34 <Dave from B™> Mike J....yes it is.....brag too much and we'll all move down to your neighborhood!
08:02:47 <ynpvisitor3> AB
08:03:58 <Mike J> Come May, you'll move Dave
08:12:54 <Kat> AL
08:14:06 <Kat> BUlger ie
08:14:37 <Kat> Bulger*
08:17:01 <Dave from B™> What is Sb logger looking like?
08:17:44 <Kevin L™🌵> Flannel shirt, long beard, carrying an ax.
08:18:10 <J. Protactinium> Frequently seen with a blue ox ... no wait, that's someone else
08:18:12 <Kat> Not sure-but think everyone may be there?
08:18:33 <Kat> Haha
08:20:46 <CraigC> LMAO
08:21:29 <Kat> :)
08:21:44 <Dave from B™> hahahahahah Kevin and Jimbo
08:22:08 <J. Protactinium> Why do I suddenly want pancakes?
08:22:12 <Dave from B™> How Quickly I forget...have to be careful how you word things around here:)
08:23:00 <J. Protactinium> My father grew up in Minnesota - heard and read lots of Paul Bunyan stories
08:23:23 <CraigC> I'd say the front end window opens up today for SB to hit 3 cherries
08:23:41 <Dave from B™> Yep...great stories
08:25:07 <Kat> Split Cone
08:25:55 <Cooper> OF
08:27:31 <Kat> Like the light
08:32:10 <Kat> Can't tell if Daisy already went
08:32:35 <Dave from B™> We should get our first 50F logger point on SB for this eruption cycle today
08:32:42 <Kat> Don't think it did
08:33:09 <ynpvisitor3> only 2h 1 min so soon
08:33:28 <CraigC> we've had SB eruptions with less than 3 days of spikes showing, we are over 2 now
08:38:04 <Kat> Temp is dropping!
08:44:46 <Katie> G'mornin'
08:45:02 <Eric> Morning
08:45:12 <Eric> You get swamped with snow Katie?
08:45:26 <Cooper> Hi Katie, Eric
08:45:35 <Eric> Hi cooper
08:45:51 <Katie> Nope. Just about an inch here.
08:46:05 <CraigC> hey Eric
08:46:13 <Eric> Hi Craig
08:46:16 <ynpvisitor84> Spared like OF!
08:46:22 <Dave from B™> Morning Eric
08:46:27 <Eric> Hi Dave
08:46:30 <Katie> The Hi-Line and the Front are where the big snow fell.
08:46:38 <Kat> Hey Katie, Eric
08:46:39 <Katie> we are unseasonably cool, but that's about it
08:46:50 <Eric> Us too
08:47:37 <CraigC> I wish I were cool, unseasonably or not
08:47:37 <Katie> My family in Anaconda got about 6", we got an inch, and people in Browning got 4 FEET
08:47:41 <ynpvisitor84> I don’t think the totals on the Hi Line were as bad as predicted
08:48:05 <ynpvisitor84> Oops, maybe not!
08:48:07 <Katie> The Hi-Line totals were right in with the forecasts I saw.
08:48:26 <ynpvisitor84> I saw some 4 ft drt
08:48:28 <Eric> Wow...4ft of snow!
08:48:41 <Dave from B™> Yep....38" in St. Mary's.... I agree, Katie...14" in GF they were expecting 14-20"
08:48:41 <Katie> I've heard 5 feet in Baab, but that's unofficial - may be someone measuring a drift.
08:48:43 <Eric> In September!
08:49:00 <ynpvisitor84> Drift photos, still have not seen photos on the level of that much
08:49:01 <Eric> and Craig you are cool :-P
08:49:23 <Cooper> I love watching it when this happens, https://forecast.weather.gov/wwamap/wwatxtget.php?cwa=tfx&wwa=civil%20emergency%20message but hate being caught in the middle of it one or two days a year
08:49:36 <Katie> There was a gal in East Glacier that started out taking level photos with a ruler, then a yardstick. When she ran out of yardstick, she was done.
08:49:47 <Eric> As long as I don't have to get some place quick...the snow is nice :-D
08:49:59 <ynpvisitor51> St Mary entrance Glacier NP https://www.nps.gov/webcams-glac/smptz.jpg
08:50:09 <ynpvisitor3> Daisy
08:50:10 <Cooper> Eric, you know that the snow only falls when you have to go somewhere:p
08:50:20 <ynpvisitor84> It’s not nice for anyone this time of year Eric
08:50:34 <Kat> I don't want to be stupid - but what is considered in the description " High Lines"
08:50:47 <Katie> Before the forecasts started hitting MT news, a Playstation contact messages my sister
08:50:56 <Dave from B™> 84, I agree. It's never good to get a snow like this when leaves haven't fallen
08:51:25 <Katie> Hi-Line is generally the MT Hwy 2 stretch all the way from Cut Bank, MT to North Dakota border, close to the Canadian border.
08:51:25 <Kat> :daisy:
08:51:34 <Kevin L™🌵> Leaves fall?
08:51:51 <ynpvisitorCC> Kat...keep the cam down basin until you hear from me
08:52:00 <Eric> I wonder what Logan pass looks like!
08:52:00 <Kat> Thanks - I would have never known that not being from that area.
08:52:07 <Kat> OK CC
08:52:09 <Katie> Nope. Leaves are still on trees. and it's heavy wet snow. Even the small amount we got in Lolo was enough to make tree branches droop & sag
08:52:42 <Katie> there is a cam at Logan Pass - but West Glacier got a minor amount compared to East Glacier
08:52:47 <Kat> LOts of power utages Katie?
08:52:50 <Eric> ohh, ya...didn't think about the trees
08:52:58 <Kat> outages*
08:53:20 <CraigC> men at work at OF; https://www.nps.gov/webcams-yell/oldfaithful.jpg?1569855152368
08:53:38 <Katie> Yes - a lot of power outages. That's what I was going to say about Playstation contact. Before we even saw forecasts, he messaged my sister and said the power company he works for was sending linemen in advance of the storm anticipating widespread and major outages
08:53:44 <Katie> Stacy said "what storm?!"
08:53:53 <Eric> Can we spin toward the hill?
08:53:54 <Kat> Joe PM
08:54:13 <Katie> Eric, cc said downbasin until she says otherwise
08:54:24 <Kat> No Eric was asked to keep cam down basin
08:54:41 <Eric> science or construction?
08:54:44 <Eric> ok
08:54:54 <Katie> Looks like science on static
08:55:21 <Kat> Soory
08:55:28 <Eric> Hmm, that is usually a shoulder season activity...guess the OF pumps must be broken.
08:55:44 <ynpvisitor3> back to you Kat
08:55:46 <CraigC> bulger
08:55:54 <Eric> Thanks for the heads up btw :-D
08:55:58 <Katie> the playstation contact is in Iowa and said linemen were being sent to MT from all over
08:57:07 <Eric> ahhh, yellow jackets on the hill now
08:57:29 <Eric> https://geysercam.xyz/ugb-ynp/09302019/278.jpg
08:57:46 <Eric> Sad that we have to hide science
08:58:06 <CraigC> ;)
08:58:24 <Katie> Yes, but I "get it." "If they can walk on the cones, so can I" mentality.
08:58:52 <CraigC> just as sad, dysfunctional thought processes
08:58:53 <Cooper> Maybe we can spin the cam here soon at some point
08:59:19 <Kat> Not until I get the OK Cooper
08:59:26 <Cooper> :thumbsup:
08:59:58 <Eric> Hmm, but they just seem to be at OF, not on GH
09:00:10 <Eric> The new cam can avoid OF pretty easily.
09:00:19 <Eric> unlike the old cam
09:03:26 <Joe> Eric PM to you
09:03:39 <Kat> Thanks Joe
09:06:56 <Eric> not quit!
09:09:30 <Dave from B™> <<>>
09:09:50 <CraigC> looks intersting; https://www.nps.gov/webcams-yell/oldfaithful.jpg?1569856112365
09:10:26 <Dave from B™> gathering evidence against previous conewalkers?
09:10:52 <Dave from B™> Winterizing OF?
09:11:28 <CraigC> LOL
09:11:54 <Eric> Logan pass is getting some snow too! https://www.nps.gov/webcams-glac/logan2.jpg?201983081052&201983081122
09:14:51 <Dave from B™> Elevation quiz for you...please the following in order from lowest to highest elevation
09:15:12 <Dave from B™> Craig Pass, Logan Pass, Norris, Mammoth
09:15:17 <Dave from B™> place*
09:16:19 <Dave from B™> :D
09:16:20 <Eric> I would just flip your list Dave
09:17:01 <CraigC> only part I know is that Norris feeds Mammoth, thus higher
09:17:31 <Eric> I think your list is currently in highest to lowest order
09:21:07 <Dave from B™> Answer is: Logan Pass, Mammoth, Norris , Craig Pass
09:21:57 <Eric> interesting
09:22:04 <Eric> Logan pass isn't that high
09:22:39 <Dave from B™> Valley elevations are much lower in Glacier area than Yellowstone
09:23:09 <Katie> Yup. Heck, Logan Pass is lower than Canyon
09:23:16 <Eric> ohh, right...you were going lowest first
09:23:49 <Eric> So I just had Logan pass in the wrong place
09:24:01 <Kat> That is interesting
09:25:08 <ynpvisitor71> Where is the snow?
09:25:30 <Joe> Logan pass parking lot https://www.nps.gov/webcams-glac/loganpark.jpg?201983092431
09:26:17 <Dave from B™> Now, if I said put in order of snow per year...Logan should be #1
09:26:39 <ynpvisitor71> https://www.nps.gov/customcf/webcam/dsp_webcam_image.cfm?id=81B4629B-1DD8-B71B-0BAE9CC7158D1E56
09:27:15 <Eric> I assume going to the sun road is now closed
09:27:58 <Joe> Glacier hq https://www.nps.gov/webcams-glac/hqcam.jpg?201983092719
09:28:21 <Dave from B™> Enough of the snow pictures. you guys need some balance!!!
09:28:23 <Dave from B™> https://www.placesyoullsee.com/24-amazing-photos-of-the-popular-cruise-port-st-thomas-2/
09:28:44 <Dave from B™> Eric, part of going to sun closed 2 weeks ago for construction
09:30:35 <Eric> haha...That construction might have come to a screeching halt :-P
09:31:40 <Dave from B™> no kidding. I bet they got 1 week in if they were lucky!
09:32:18 <ynpvisitor3> Our 'friendly' bison is in the meadow
09:32:32 <Kat> :)
09:32:35 <ynpvisitor20> GTTSR was maybe going to reopen on the 30th. A post I saw yesterday says "I got to the park entrance near Apgar, From what they told me it looks like the going to the sun road will be closed for at least few more days. It's Not expected to be opened this week."
09:32:50 <Kat> He slept in this morning - it was cold!
09:34:26 <Eric> Wow...I am really surprised they expect to open it at all!
09:38:53 <CraigC> bulger
09:39:05 <CraigC> bank steam
09:43:04 <ynpvisitor23> Not snow. https://cff2.earth.com/uploads/2019/06/02000526/blobfish-730x410.jpg
09:44:01 <ynpvisitor3> how did you get my picture ??
09:44:09 <Dave from B™> hahaha
09:44:19 <CraigC> LMAO
09:44:21 <Kat> I gave it to him LOL
09:44:31 <CraigC> I actually used that as a profile picture years ago
09:44:58 <ynpvisitor23> I took it off of Dave's sale page.
09:45:11 <ynpvisitor23> Buy one get one free.
09:45:17 <CraigC> LOL
09:45:58 <Dave from B™> :D:D:D
09:47:04 <ynpvisitor23> Well, enjoy the cooper less morning. Got to go.
09:47:16 <Eric> Bye 23
09:47:47 <J. Protactinium> They have blobfish pillows.
09:48:07 <ynpvisitorCC> Kat...yo can move the cam
09:48:23 <CraigC> did they fix Old Faithful?
09:49:15 <CraigC> churn steamy
09:49:21 <ynpvisitor3> installed the new valve...just in time
09:49:48 <Kat> Got a call Can move cam!
09:50:37 <Kat> CraigC, Yep!
09:57:25 <Eric> So are they replacing the BW in front of the Lodge?
09:58:24 <CraigC> maybe it has something to do with trying to tell people in cabins not to shortcut across that area to the path
09:58:36 <ynpvisitor3> It looks like they are (based on close up views this weekend)
09:58:50 <Kat> I think they are
09:59:05 <CraigC> they need a legit path from the cabins there if they don't want them walking across
09:59:40 <Dave from B™> There is one path that is still kosher to walk on
10:00:26 <CraigC> OF
10:00:58 <Katie> Kat, I'll wait to log in until after OF, unless you are ready to jet
10:01:58 <Kat> You can take it - going to the vet after I clean up his mess! :( poor pup !
10:02:17 <CraigC> Kat, sorry
10:02:37 <Katie> Oh, no! You've got a sick one. sorry!
10:02:45 <Kat> Me too - didn't want another vet bill - but what are you gonna do?
10:03:04 <Kat> 3 days now!
10:03:59 <Katie> We went through that a few months ago. We opted to do all of the bloodwork and fecal tests, had her at vet for observation and sample collection for a day. I was pleasantly surprised by the bill. Expected far worse.
10:04:01 <Kat> Have a good afternoon - hope I don't miss Bee
10:05:35 <Kat> My pup has an anxiety problem - and I think that's a lot of it. They keep giving him antifungals without the tests - I know better. He needs the symptoms to subside.
10:06:30 <Kat> bbl
10:08:50 <CraigC> bulger
10:08:52 <Cooper> what did I miss?
10:12:33 <Cooper> Bison ie
10:13:26 <Dave from B™> Which end?
10:14:02 <CraigC> percolator
10:14:30 <Cooper> Dave, for the Bison?
10:14:51 <Cooper> about 1/5 of the way from the right, 1/3 of the way up(for the bison)
10:15:17 <Dave from B™> You said it was in eruption
10:15:44 <Cooper> Bison is ie, yes, :p Bison Geyser
10:15:52 <Cooper> haha
10:15:54 <Cooper> now I get it
10:15:57 <Cooper> 0=
10:16:25 <Cooper> I say both ends
10:20:20 <LindaG> Good morning all
10:20:27 <Eric> Hi Linda
10:20:34 <LindaG> Eric, hi
10:20:46 <Eric> So it looks like BWs are snow covered
10:20:47 <Eric> still
10:20:57 <Kevin L™🌵> Hi
10:21:01 <ynpvisitor102> It’s freezing there!!
10:21:08 <LindaG> Kevin L™🌵, hi
10:21:16 <Cooper> LindaG, hi
10:21:20 <Eric> Webcam keeps cutting out
10:21:22 <LindaG> Cooper, hi
10:21:29 <ynpvisitor102> No time for them to melt yet
10:21:44 <LindaG> Eric, that's not good
10:22:02 <LindaG> A nippyn25nde
10:22:07 <LindaG> Yikes
10:22:17 <LindaG> A nippy 25 degrees
10:22:21 <ynpvisitor102> I’ve been assured it’s a Pixlecaster issue not a cam issue
10:22:26 <Eric> Katie broke it!
10:22:46 <ynpvisitor102> I think it was 19 degrees earlier
10:23:11 <LindaG> Well at least I'm sure she knows how to fix it
10:23:17 <Eric> Well, the camop would be able to tell if theirs is not stuttering
10:23:47 <ynpvisitor102> That was the scoop yesterday from cam op
10:24:15 <Katie> There was one stutter on control screen, briefly - but the other stuttering is only on public stream, so, yes, PixelCaster.
10:24:29 <Eric> OT
10:24:32 <Eric> ie
10:24:35 <ynpvisitor102> I’m surprised SteveO did not confirm Oblong. Sounds like he is out there
10:24:41 <Eric> nevermind...someone already got it
10:28:02 <Eric> Hmm, the cam might not have enough bandwidth for camop and pixelcaster stream
10:31:26 <LindaG> It's always something
10:32:35 <LindaG> I have grahams shift tonight
10:37:02 <Katie> Just disconnected from camop panel to see how it does without that logged in
10:38:21 <ynpvisitor102> Why did it work this past week then?
10:38:46 <Katie> could be CenturyLink has network congestion
10:39:28 <Katie> I'm testing being disconnected from control panel and the different panels just for giggles
10:41:39 <Eric> Seems pretty stable with you out Katie
10:42:01 <Eric> I wonder if admins are logged in simultaneously
10:42:22 <Eric> Not sure everyone there knows that if multiple people log in, they can kill the public feed.
10:42:26 <Katie> I only stayed out for a minute. Then I logged into vb viewer. Now I'm back to mobile viewer (different options). That doesn't seem to be connected.
10:42:41 <Eric> Castle
10:42:50 <Katie> but disconnecting and reconnecting may have had an effect
10:42:59 <Eric> Interesting
10:43:11 <Katie> Or maybe just coincidence...
10:43:31 <Eric> Yep...networks, so much fun!
10:43:40 <LindaG> Those coincidences....
10:43:55 <Eric> Did I catch start of Castle or just ie?
10:44:10 <Eric> Guess it was start, Steve O got in basin
10:44:10 <Katie> But, if we are going to be leaving the cam on one view for a while and it's stuttering, there is no reason we can't hit the disconnect button and reconnect when needed.
10:44:24 <ynpvisitor47> logged as 1042 start on GT
10:44:34 <Eric> Yep, thanks 47
10:44:39 <Katie> start
10:45:02 <Eric> lot of steam from arty down there
10:45:59 <Kevin L™🌵> I think the mobile viewer uses less than the other one.
10:48:04 <Eric> They should use the same, I assume the streams are constrained at the server end.
10:48:12 <Eric> at least they should be....
10:49:04 <Cooper> adios'
10:58:28 <Eric> and back to failing..
10:58:48 <Kevin L™🌵> Nice Fall foliage picture: https://www.railpictures.net/photo/711372/
10:59:39 <Eric> wow, thats beautiful Kevin
11:01:46 <Eric> Mt. Hood is starting to get snow covered again too! https://www.timberlinelodge.com/snowcameras/palmerbottom.jpg?nocache=1569862841
11:04:00 <Eric> I think they are going to have to take down their Bike Park signs soon :-P https://www.timberlinelodge.com/snowcameras//brunotop.jpg?nocache=1569862841
11:04:31 <Kevin L™🌵> Chains required?
11:06:23 <CraigC> daisy
11:07:47 <J. Protactinium> Consider my bike parked.
11:08:44 <CraigC> that is ripe for fat-tire bikes
11:30:42 <Eric> Katie, can you zoom in on the pools behind OF? I don't think we have ever done that
11:30:53 <Eric> Those are pretty large
11:32:28 <Eric> Thanks
11:32:50 <Eric> Even the ridges are pretty cool back there
11:33:17 <Eric> Interesting how the "front" and "back" of the OF cone are so different
11:33:25 <Katie> yw - this is is one of the positions I use before eruptions.
11:33:38 <Eric> Is that max zoom?
11:33:53 <Katie> nope
11:34:02 <CraigC> why the barricade back there?
11:34:42 <CraigC> Lion ie
11:34:59 <Eric> Thanks...looks like just digital zoom after that point.
11:35:33 <Eric> OF indicator pool is full
11:36:24 <Eric> I assume any second it will erupt
11:37:22 <Katie> we haven't had any warmup splashes yet
11:37:49 <Eric> But it's been super consistent on the last 7 recorded iintervals
11:38:03 <Eric> just assumed it would this time too :-P
11:41:21 <Dave from B™> Thanks, Eric! Now, it will erupt outside the window:)
11:41:41 <Eric> OF
11:42:10 <Eric> Missed Lion ini :-(
11:42:34 <CraigC> Eric, look up about 10 comments :)
11:45:55 <LindaG> Snow flakes
11:46:16 <LindaG> Maybe not
11:46:25 <LindaG> Yay
11:46:28 <CraigC> looks so
11:46:36 <Kevin L™🌵> :p
11:46:53 <LindaG> Kevin L™🌵, 😀
11:49:40 <LindaG> Aurum is due
11:49:55 <Eric> Luckily Steve is up there
11:49:58 <J. Protactinium> Happy September 30!
11:50:03 <LindaG> Last 4:32 min
11:50:21 <LindaG> J. Protactinium, where did September go?
11:51:23 <Eric> Yep, Aurum seems likely if we didn't miss it
11:54:06 <LindaG> Splashing
11:56:47 <LindaG> Looked like bsb
11:59:50 <Eric> Yellow flag tour...heading to the beautiful morning glory
12:00:18 <Eric> Parking their yellow bus illegally in the Inn parking lot I'm sure
12:02:08 <Eric> aurum looks ready
12:02:28 <CraigC> I'm ready
12:03:48 <Eric> BH or Aurum first?
12:04:07 <LindaG> Aurum
12:04:15 <LindaG> First
12:04:39 <Eric> Maybe another dual!
12:04:48 <CraigC> Pump
12:05:46 <Eric> https://youtu.be/089FXiadgXY?t=7
12:06:47 <Katie> Pump can sure look big under these conditions
12:07:20 <Katie> It would sure be nice to have someone entering Turbans for the next little while...
12:09:23 <CraigC> Eric, OMH... "that little Webster guy could live inside one of my thighs"
12:11:02 <Eric> haha
12:11:23 <Eric> "We're here to Pump, You UP!"
12:17:23 <J. Protactinium> Lake is being assimilated
12:18:15 <LindaG> They are all holding out on us!
12:18:42 <Katie> Gonna all go at once
12:19:15 <LindaG> Of course! 😀
12:19:30 <LindaG> Keep the camop busy
12:21:19 <Katie> turban?
12:21:43 <LindaG> Looks like it
12:25:52 <Eric> Still looking at the hikes in the SE part of the park since Dave mentioned those tall peaks :-D
12:26:29 <Eric> Hike up to Eagle Point then along the ridge
12:28:38 <Eric> or Eagle Peak
12:28:43 <Dave from B™> So, you like the ridleline for views or you like to be in lightning danger at all times?:)
12:28:51 <CraigC> been thinking about the Shoshone hike, would need to pick your brain about how you pack for a one nighter
12:29:40 <Dave from B™> CraigC, with a bike to Lone satr, it's not a bad hike
12:30:10 <Eric> Still 7 mile hike from there...and you would have to leave your bike overnight.
12:30:12 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
12:30:27 <Eric> 2 miles of that path isn't really going to make a difference IMHO
12:30:31 <CraigC> I have an older bike I would bring up
12:30:50 <Dave from B™> CraigC, when are you planning on going?
12:31:07 <Eric> I have a stove and cooking stuff for hot water, just need a couple freeze dried meals and something to sleep in.
12:31:08 <CraigC> Eric said about going in August
12:31:23 <Eric> Yes, mid-late august
12:31:35 <CraigC> I have a light single person tent, I think under 3lbs
12:31:43 <Eric> If I plan something and others are joining, then I have to do it :-P
12:32:25 <Eric> I have the setup to hang any food we bring
12:32:46 <Eric> giant scent "proof" bags and hang bag
12:33:39 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
12:33:58 <CraigC> I'd like to get back into that stuff
12:34:05 <Eric> I would probably try to arrange it so it was the few days before my reservations at the cabins
12:34:49 <Eric> Then I could just leave my car packed up and cleanup from the hike at the cabins.
12:34:52 <Dave from B™> You can count me in if I'm free
12:35:05 <Dave from B™> And, if I'm invited:)
12:35:09 <Eric> Woot...that would be 3 of us
12:35:29 <Eric> Yes, I would love as many gazers as we could get, not sure how many each campsite supports though
12:35:43 <Dave from B™> How about inviting someone who knows the basin?
12:36:11 <Katie> Ballpark Frank might be good to have along
12:36:34 <CraigC> if Wm is back up there, I am sure he would want to be invited, also
12:37:54 <Eric> Yes, I would love to get Larry or Clark or ???
12:38:13 <CraigC> Moe?
12:38:17 <Eric> I don't know Frank, but I would welcome anyone with experience up there
12:38:43 <Eric> Maybe we can get Bill to go up there and we can do some volunteer work :-D
12:38:51 <Eric> Thermal area cleanup?
12:38:56 <CraigC> wooohooo
12:39:03 <CraigC> "OWWWWW"
12:39:35 <CraigC> "I swear I had a hand at the end of that arm"
12:44:01 <LindaG> The dreaded x nooooo
12:44:08 <Katie> control panel is lagging, too
12:44:20 <CraigC> uh oh
12:44:37 <Kevin L™🌵> Katie broke the cam?
12:44:42 <Katie> Yup
12:45:10 <CraigC> someone earlier was commenting about if others log into the cam page it slows everything down?
12:46:37 <LindaG> Eric was saying only one person at a time on controls
12:46:47 <Eric> I mentioned it might have an effect, I don't think thats anything but conjecture right now.
12:46:56 <CraigC> ok
12:47:03 <Eric> Until we can see some proof.
12:47:41 <CraigC> one day when everything seems to be running smooth, all of us camops could sign in and see what happens :)
12:47:46 <Eric> Also, it looks like we can cram 8 people into 8R5 campsite on shoshone
12:48:18 <Dave from B™> Eric, do they have bunk beds at *R5?
12:48:24 <CraigC> LOL
12:48:33 <Eric> Yep...I call top bunk :-P
12:48:43 <CraigC> "can I be on top?"
12:48:59 <CraigC> Tom Hanks
12:49:05 <Eric> Sorry Dave, only bottom bunks left
12:50:25 <LindaG> Peeps out by aurum
12:51:47 <Dave from B™> Sure, put me at bear level:)
12:52:47 <Katie> Lion
12:52:57 <Eric> Nice
12:53:00 <Eric> other than failing cam
12:53:15 <Eric> Snow falling thick at lake
12:53:38 <LindaG> Lion
12:54:10 <Eric> good call on the framing
12:54:31 <Katie> Wanted a brief closeup, but don't want to miss Aurum or BHI
12:55:17 <Dave from B™> so, if a lot of gazers are at one geyser, is it a gaggle, a group, a pack or what?
12:56:09 <ynpvisitor47> a murder
12:56:19 <Katie> No, we aren't crows
12:56:31 <LindaG> It's an eruption of gazers
12:56:34 <Dave from B™> Katie, exactly....you beat me to it
12:56:40 <ynpvisitor31> An eruption of gazers
12:56:41 <Dave from B™> LindaG, I like it
12:56:48 <Cooper> I would think either, a gaggle of Gazers, or a Gang of Gazers
12:57:00 <Kevin L™🌵> A disaster?
12:57:06 <LindaG> Dave from B™, 😊
12:57:24 <Dave from B™> hahaha Kevin...depends on our mood
12:57:29 <Katie> or irruption ;)
12:58:20 <J. Protactinium> That's the word I was thinking of Katie
12:58:22 <CraigC> it would be a bunch of people arguing over what is a "gazer"
12:58:28 <Katie> Did we miss Grand? NPS no longer has prediction
12:58:30 <Dave from B™> Day 5 at SB = disaster
12:58:32 <Kevin L™🌵> Or a geyser
12:59:07 <Kevin L™🌵> NPS has Grand at 1830
12:59:24 <Katie> they had a grand in window not too long ago
12:59:44 <LindaG> Uh oh did we miss it?
13:01:24 <Dave from B™> I have a SB logger download question....Why is it only downloaded once a day? Could it be done more often since we are in an active phase?
13:02:00 <ynpvisitor47> Dave from B™, batteries
13:02:56 <Dave from B™> Thanks, 47. Didn't think of that. Every download drains the batteries. Does this happen automatically?
13:03:01 <Eric> yep, those loggers only have so much juice
13:04:01 <Eric> I hope the snow isn't causing the new cam troubles
13:04:13 <Eric> or we are in for a winter of blanks screens :-(
13:05:07 <Eric> and dead
13:06:13 <Eric> Just in time for all the Green on the predictions board
13:06:14 <Dave from B™> So, I guess a dowenload every 15 minutes is out of the question?:)
13:07:05 <Eric> Dave, if they can keep the data uploading every day I will be ecstatic!
13:07:29 <Kevin L™🌵> http://www.goatlocker.org/sound/navyband/taps.mp3
13:07:31 <Eric> uggg, just in time for another OF window :-(
13:07:45 <Eric> Yep
13:08:36 <Eric> Katie, is it affecting the camop stream too or just the public stream?
13:08:56 <Katie> Occasional impact to camop stream, but not nearly as bad as public.
13:09:15 <Eric> Makes sense as the public stream is higher bandwidth
13:09:23 <Eric> definitely sounds like a bandwidth issue
13:09:32 <Katie> Yup
13:09:45 <ynpvisitor58> The cold is causing the squirrel to run slower.
13:09:57 <Eric> if it was the wireless acting up again, I assume they would both chop out equally
13:10:43 <Eric> I would be curious of what the error rate is on the T1 line they have and if it fluctuates.
13:10:50 <Eric> or noise level
13:11:01 <Eric> or whatever they call it over copper :-P
13:11:13 <Cooper> what about me?
13:11:17 <Cooper> oh
13:11:21 <Cooper> haha
13:11:29 <Eric> I know your noise level cooper
13:11:38 <Cooper> YELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL
13:11:40 <Katie> :):)
13:11:40 <ynpvisitor58> I think T1 has both.
13:12:24 <Eric> Yes, I have to assume the T1 modem that modulates the analog signal has noise levels and error correction rates.
13:13:07 <ynpvisitor58> Analog? It would be digital.
13:13:28 <Eric> T1 is a modem for sending data over a copper wire
13:14:25 <Eric> Is the signal really digital traveling over copper? I assumed it was some analog wave pulse that the modem converts back and forth to digital
13:14:40 <Eric> hence the name modem :-D
13:14:56 <Eric> modulate, demodulate
13:15:45 <Eric> Yep, analog
13:15:52 <Eric> Just used the internets :-P
13:16:06 <ynpvisitor58> My net says digital
13:16:12 <Katie> It's been 20 years since I had any direct involvement with any T1's.
13:16:29 <Eric> Not sure what your "net" is.
13:16:41 <ynpvisitor58> google
13:17:08 <Eric> I had to use them at our last office building in the heart of "Silicon Valley". Stupid services didn't have connections into the building.
13:17:32 <Eric> What does it say is digital? A T1 modem?
13:17:34 <Eric> over copper
13:21:00 <ynpvisitor58> One reference to a T1. http://www.netchain.com/Reference/t1.asp
13:22:44 <ynpvisitor58> Analog takes to much band width, that is why no more analog cell service in the USA. Everything is digitized. Why convert digital to analog and then convert to digital again?
13:22:44 <LindaG> Bbl
13:22:58 <Eric> ahh, thanks 58, I started digging more. Apparently t1 modem is not a real thing...I just always took it at face value.
13:23:35 <Eric> Well, digital means off or on and copper can't really send and off/on signal like fiber can.
13:23:40 <Katie> yeah, its an ATM or something like that that the T1 terminates to, and that is the bridge to a router
13:24:10 <Eric> It can send wave like pulses that get interpreted like digital signals, but something is taking the electricity wave and converting it.
13:24:11 <CraigC> did OF erupt?
13:24:15 <Katie> yup
13:24:18 <ynpvisitor58> DSL is digital and copper.
13:24:30 <CraigC> no entry
13:25:11 <Casey> OF ie on static it appears
13:25:25 <CraigC> Casey, yeah, good looking one
13:25:27 <Katie> that's a minute or two ago...
13:25:32 <Casey> Is it an old image or is the time stamp bad?
13:25:52 <Casey> Sounds like a little of both
13:25:56 <CraigC> "1:19"
13:25:56 <Katie> time stamp is 2 minutes off
13:26:50 <Katie> I'm not sure we can even see Daisy with telephoto compressed snow..
13:27:25 <Katie> and static seems stuck on 1:19
13:27:57 <Katie> Well, at least it's stuck on an eruption
13:28:10 <CraigC> nothing in GT for OF
13:28:50 <Katie> I saw it. I was closeup on cone until eruption started and then went wider angle. I didn't enter it, darn it. But we know it was IE at 1:19. :)
13:29:14 <Katie> or 1:17 real time. Or whatever
13:29:55 <Eric> I am learning too much about T1 DS1 and Linecode now :-P
13:30:28 <Casey> I'll defer to someone else. I don't trust the timestamp on the static cam. I'd put ie 1324 based on what I saw, but someone else has a better time I'm sure.
13:30:30 <Eric> If you want to learn about how digital signals are sent over analog wires: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Line_code
13:32:10 <ynpvisitor58> Sorry, DSL is not digital. It is actually high frequency analog. One reason why it has limited distance I guess.
13:32:16 <Katie> It was before 13:23 - I typed "ATM or something like that" after moving to wider view
13:33:21 <CraigC> 1324 ie is good enough to create the next prediction
13:33:23 <Katie> Right, 58. DSL is still copper. And customer premise must be within 18,000 copper feet of DSLAM. Or something like that...
13:33:42 <Casey> Way to stick to your guns CraigC
13:33:54 <CraigC> ;)
13:34:04 <ynpvisitor58> But T1 is copper.
13:34:06 <Katie> When DSL was new, there could be people within 3 miles of the phone company CO (central office) but further than 18,000 copper feet and precluded.
13:34:09 <Eric> Yep, that was my initial confusion, it looks like T1 is pretty much all digital signaling, while DSL is still a true modem
13:34:18 <Casey> Posted
13:34:46 <Katie> That will at least update the prediction window reasonably. Thanks, Casey.
13:35:02 <Dave from B™> Alright, I have a question for camper owners. At what temp do you need to winterize? Am I safe at a low of 28F for an hour or so?
13:35:09 <Eric> Yes, but they use better processors in the transmission of T1 data, cheaper for the DSL likes to just modem it I guess
13:35:17 <ynpvisitor58> Also you do not need to be on or off for digital. You can modulate voltage or frequency to be digital. IT all depends on how you decord it.
13:35:47 <Katie> 28 should be fine for a couple hours. We turned the heater on in ours, though, because we couldn't get it winterized yesterday.
13:36:01 <Dave from B™> Thanks Katie
13:36:07 <Eric> Yep, turn your heat on for a while dave
13:36:15 <Eric> run your water a little
13:36:18 <Eric> maybe
13:36:31 <Katie> We hooked up propane and electricity to fuel the furnace and allow the fan/blower to work on electricity
13:36:47 <Eric> If you have a garage, that would be best
13:37:09 <Eric> But most of those Class C can take pretty low temps before needing winterization
13:37:56 <Dave from B™> Eric, my garage isn't tall enough at the present time
13:38:12 <ynpvisitor46> I never winterize. I just put a heater in and set to low. I did that because I used it all year, and never stopped doing it that way.
13:38:12 <Cooper> can we have a quick 10 second look at Bee, thought I may have seen something on static
13:38:16 <Eric> how about the fish barn?
13:38:23 <Dave from B™> Won't be done until Spring
13:38:31 <Katie> I just don't want to ruin pipes in a 2 year old trailer! So, burning some propany and spinning the electric meter a bit for one night -
13:38:40 <Dave from B™> Well, that wouldn't go over with the partners in my building but good idea!
13:38:41 <Cooper> nope
13:38:51 <Kevin L™🌵> Just sleep in it tonight Dave. Put in a dsl connection for internet.
13:39:05 <Dave from B™> :D
13:39:12 <Eric> ok...gotta grab some lunch, look for that BHI any moment
13:39:37 <Cooper> Bye Eric
13:39:56 <Dave from B™> My garage is plumped for gas heater. I think I may do that as well. Even without the camper purchase that was going to happen so we can daddle in the garage in the 6 months of winter
13:40:43 <ynpvisitor46> Dave, as long as you have power, and gas, don't worry about it. I have been winter camping in below zero and not froze up.
13:40:53 <Kevin L™🌵> You need the heater in there to keep the model railroad track from pulling apart.
13:41:06 <ynpvisitor46> If it makes you feel better, open the cabinets under the sinks.
13:41:38 <Dave from B™> Thanks
13:42:19 <Katie> In ours, the heater is right next to the kitchen sink, and the tub and toilet are quite close. I opened bathroom door out of an abundance of caution.
13:42:43 <CraigC> I'm listening closely to all of the suggestions, thanks
13:43:08 <Dave from B™> haha, I notice you hadn't been commenting, CraigC. Do we need to slow down so you can take notes?:D
13:43:22 <CraigC> :)
13:43:28 <Cooper> Craig, are you heading back to chase SB?
13:43:42 <ynpvisitor46> The only problem i have ever had is the towels cover the pipes under the bath sink, and the drains that go through the floor froze when we did the below zero camp trip.
13:43:46 <CraigC> I am heading back, with guests
13:44:09 <Cooper> fun
13:44:16 <Cooper> enjoy the cold, and SB
13:44:56 <CraigC> probably not going to SB
13:45:10 <Cooper> that will be torture for you
13:46:02 <CraigC> would it be bullying to say that you don't know what you are talking about? :)
13:46:15 <Cooper> no
13:46:31 <Cooper> but I do not think you like going to YNP and not seeing SB
13:47:11 <Kevin L™🌵> At least I am pretty sure I will see the Big Boy.
13:47:19 <ynpvisitor46> Dave, if you are going to winterize, I would suggest finding someone who will guarantee the job and pay them. Make sure they blow out the hot water tank and do not put in rv antifreeze. Hard to get the taste out, that is why they have the kits that bypass the heater.
13:47:20 <Cooper> Kevin, you are going to YNP?
13:47:23 <CraigC> sometimes I go to YNP to show stuff to others, and I also enjoy doing that
13:47:42 <Kevin L™🌵> No, just doing some training.
13:47:47 <ynpvisitor46> He is talking trains
13:47:54 <Cooper> New Side of Craig, Craig:)
13:48:04 <Cooper> Oh, The Big Boy, as in the train
13:48:36 <CraigC> Dave, does yours have the bypass valve for the heater? I bet it does. Mine does
13:49:49 <CraigC> no, not a new side.... 2 trips in May of this year I played tour guide, not to mention countless times over my many years of life
13:50:22 <Dave from B™> Yes, I have a bypass and I think I'm going to have my RV dealer winterize it the first year until i get more comfortable with it.
13:50:36 <CraigC> Dave from B™, :thumbsup:
13:51:21 <Dave from B™> Yep...some of my best memories in YNP have been as a tour guide for relatives
13:51:25 <ynpvisitor46> Dave, you will learn something about RV service. If you need it done this month, you should have taken it in 2 months ago.
13:51:35 <Dave from B™> haha 46, I agree
13:51:46 <Katie> We paid RV dealer last 2 years. They used RV anti-freeze. We don't drink the water. We bought the attachment to blow it out ourselves this time. We will use RV antifreeze - the owner's manual says to do so and the dealer always did, so we will do so.
13:52:04 <Kevin L™🌵> I agree Dave. Finally go my brother to come with last year and he wished he would have done it sooner.
13:53:26 <Katie> Everyone in Missoula was sold out of RV antifreeze yesterday. Matt (my husband) got the last 2 jugs at AutoZone (where he works).
13:53:52 <ynpvisitor46> I could not imagine not fully using our trailer. We do have a filter pitcher for water, mostly so it is cold. We cook out of the tap.
13:54:17 <Katie> We will only need about 3 cups. Manual says 1 cup in each p drain or p pipe or whatever.
13:55:03 <Katie> 46, I agree. I find not being able to drink the water a pita. I use it to wash, flush, fill my humidifier tank for CPAP, but not drink or cook. Just tastes bad.
13:55:27 <CraigC> not to panic, there is a place on Teh Innerwebs called Amazon; https://www.amazon.com/Camco-RV-Antifreeze-Concentrate-Vacation/dp/B00MGHVRVG/ref=sxin_2_ac_d_rm?ac_md=0-0-cnYgYW50aWZyZWV6ZQ%3D%3D-ac_d_rm&keywords=rv+antifreeze&pd_rd_i=B00MGHVRVG&pd_rd_r=3ad869f9-7df1-4885-bc1c-c445fcd70cf3&pd_rd_w=3KKOs&pd_rd_wg=3P6E4&pf_rd_p=2938a786-9bec-4d37-8c06-456e3edce5d1&pf_rd_r=4HT9T00DN8R76W22F2F7&psc=1&q
13:56:54 <ynpvisitor46> I bet someone used a garden hose to fill the tank. I am a water Nazi, learned it from my dad. I can drink the water in my tank and it tastes great, never been sick..
13:57:00 <Kevin L™🌵> That is something I would have never thought about.
13:57:30 <Dave from B™> Has anyone seen the monster Amazon Fulfillment Center near the spokane WA airport? Just finished. the building is HUGE
13:57:53 <Dave from B™> Yep, I have the white hose
13:58:12 <CraigC> I have 2 fresh water hoses that I only use for clean potable water, and I connect them to themselves to keep them protected from contamination
13:58:23 <Katie> I'm a bit of a water Nazi, too. I fill up all of the vacuum insulated water bottles and I have a couple gallon vacuum insulated jugs.
13:58:32 <ynpvisitor46> Good, now you just need to remember not to drop it.
13:58:57 <CraigC> I also keep all my attachements in a sealed freezer bag :)
13:59:28 <Dave from B™> My first dump of my taknes was an adventure. Let's just say I was hopping to keep my feet dry:)
13:59:34 <Katie> We have a white fresh drinking water hose (not garden hose) that we have always used. And we connect it to itself, too. But the water in the camper still has a "taste" that bothers me.
13:59:36 <CraigC> hahahah
14:00:02 <CraigC> Katie, maybe a clorox dilution?
14:00:16 <Dave from B™> A new meaning to the words "Check your shoes"
14:01:03 <Kevin L™🌵> You need rubber duckie shoes.
14:01:03 <CraigC> we have a couple of 5 gallon containers for water to drink and use in the coffee maker
14:01:07 <ynpvisitor46> @ times ago we got stuck in line. Burned through a cd waiting for 3 rigs. The first 2 were together and all 4 of them had to stand around, help, and talk. I was out and back in the truck in 4 minutes.
14:02:09 <Cooper> C'Mon Bee, you know you want too
14:02:13 <CraigC> it takes me over 10 mins to flush out the black tank and run some 'clean' water through it a while
14:02:27 <ynpvisitor46> I do beach my tank in the spring. I think you can get a treatment to sweeten a stale tank at the rv place?
14:03:08 <Dave from B™> The gas station I dumped at turned their water off. Had to go summer else to finish the job.
14:04:25 <ynpvisitor46> I hate that. It still does not seem right even though I dump the wash water last, so the hose is mostly clean.
14:05:12 <ynpvisitor46> I am lucky that my tanks do not need to be flushed. Used to dump a bowl, but no longer.
14:05:30 <Dave from B™> Isn't the black waste flush for the black tank portion of the plumbing? I know the gray water cleans the hose.
14:05:35 <Katie> Yeah, we always run water through the black water pipe after dumping even though we dump black water first and then gray. Wouldn't want to put it away "dirty"
14:06:09 <ynpvisitor46> My pipe is like 6 inches long. Direct from tank to valve.
14:06:30 <CraigC> I open and close the black tank valve when I hook up the water to flush it out
14:07:02 <CraigC> let it fill up some, then flood out
14:07:06 <Dave from B™> Yeah...just make sure valve is open when you flush it
14:08:02 <ynpvisitor46> Some rigs have a connection for flushing, any of you have one?
14:08:04 <Katie> We have a fairly long black water hose - sometimes the hookup at cg's with sewer hookups are some distance away. We have the accordion thing to make a slope to the sewer drain, too.
14:08:33 <CraigC> ynpvisitor46, mine does on the back of the trailer, up higher than the tank
14:08:39 <Katie> We have a shorter one that we use when we have not been connected to sewer and pull up to a dump station.
14:08:40 <Dave from B™> 46, yes, I have a connection
14:08:51 <ynpvisitor46> Fancy
14:09:07 <ynpvisitor46> lion looks happy
14:09:59 <ynpvisitor46> It also helps if when parked and hooked up, you do not leave the black water tank open.
14:10:29 <CraigC> isnt that stinky?
14:10:46 <Katie> We don't leave either open until black is 2/3. Then we open up black until it is drained, then open up gray, then close both again. Want enough gray to flush the black.
14:11:09 <ynpvisitor46> Nope
14:11:17 <Dave from B™> You want liquid to stay in tank and then flush
14:11:29 <ynpvisitor46> yup
14:11:35 <Katie> It's stinkier open, Craig - and if the sewer backs up or there are vermin in the sewer... Keep them closed. Open to drain as needed. If there isn't enough gray water, run some water until there is. You want enough gray to flush black.
14:11:35 <ynpvisitor46> Dave read
14:12:19 <Dave from B™> I did my homework:)
14:12:25 <ynpvisitor46> But I grew up in the old days. We only had one tank, and there were things called gopher holes.
14:13:03 <ynpvisitor46> We even had decorating contests at rallies.
14:13:58 <CraigC> decorate what?
14:14:05 <ynpvisitor46> Now days they have an app for you phone to find dump stations.
14:14:22 <CraigC> ynpvisitor46, ha, I use that site, on the net
14:14:26 <ynpvisitor46> For the gopher holes.
14:14:27 <CraigC> sanidumps
14:16:14 <ynpvisitor46> Sheridan WY has an honest box for the dump, and water is like 25 cents for 12 gallons.
14:16:40 <ynpvisitor46> Jellystone is free.
14:18:15 <ynpvisitor46> The one in Cody is hard to find, big secret I think.
14:18:48 <Dave from B™> We have a Holiday Gas Station close to our house that is free
14:19:04 <ynpvisitor46> With fill up?
14:19:57 <CraigC> there are Mavericks here in Utah totally free, no strings
14:19:59 <Dave from B™> Nope...just go inside and give tham an ID and they give you the key
14:22:22 <ynpvisitor46> Like this? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Ig5vcY9R50
14:22:56 <Dave from B™> haha
14:23:30 <ynpvisitor46> Well lunch time, enjoy the steam.
14:59:01 <ynpvisitor31> OF
14:59:02 <CraigC> of
14:59:03 <Kat> OF
14:59:10 <CraigC> lol
14:59:11 <Dave from B™> Where's Betty? I think she has the SB button.
14:59:19 <ynpvisitor31> I'm on 30 second delay, btw
14:59:58 <Dave from B™> 31, that's evidently a shorter delay than Craig:D
15:00:39 <ynpvisitor31> "missed it by that much" :D
15:01:35 <CraigC> really that much delay?
15:06:29 <Kat> Katie-bill not too bad - he's confined to the crate. Fasting for 24-48 hours. One more mess to clean up and I'm done for the day hopefully! :)
15:08:59 <Katie> Poor puppy!
15:09:03 <Cooper> did we miss Bee?
15:15:57 <Kat> Thanks Katie!
15:19:59 <Cooper> Hi Linda
15:20:28 <LindaG> I guess we never saw aurum🙁 maybe tonight
15:20:38 <LindaG> Cooper, hi
15:20:40 <Cooper> Bee is going to go the second I leave, isn't it
15:20:56 <LindaG> Yup
15:21:09 <Cooper> Not very encouraging Linda:p
15:21:39 <Cooper> I hate being the sacrifice, but I guess I will bee, adios
15:21:40 <LindaG> It's an honor to be the sacrifice
15:21:53 <LindaG> 😉
15:22:09 <Cooper> Now I feel like I am Mayan, and getting sacrificed
15:22:10 <Cooper> Bye
15:22:22 <LindaG> Bye
15:22:27 <Casey> Just be like me and don't announce when you leave. BH has not idea you're not still here.
15:22:43 <Katie> I almost just said that Mayans sacrificed the best. ;) But that was morbid, so I didn't say it. You did!
15:23:07 <Casey> Too soon
15:33:04 <Katie> News release has been made
15:34:01 <Dave from B™> I just saw that
15:35:09 <Dave from B™> So, camera didn't catch him last night, I take it?
15:36:22 <ynpvisitor20> that was the down-basin camera position this morning then, for the investigation.
15:36:32 <Katie> Yup
15:36:39 <ynpvisitor3> link to news release please
15:36:51 <lori lurking> https://www.nps.gov/yell/learn/news/19043.htm?fbclid=IwAR2hlEJzK6nEWUG4CADqBp6KjOKknuKi1vRlqPSHx0Wd9upP7AD68u-DTVM
15:37:04 <ynpvisitor3> thanks
15:37:47 <lori lurking> says the camera video isn't saved.
15:38:12 <Dave from B™> Isn't that Joe's "shift"?:)
15:38:18 <ynpvisitor6> Which feature was it? No one specifies in these stories.
15:38:22 <Katie> It isn't saved by NPS. But, of course, we know it is saved.
15:38:43 <Katie> but the night views don't always include OF
15:38:58 <Dave from B™> It was near OF
15:39:20 <ynpvisitor6> Blue Star? Chinese? Old Faithful itself?
15:39:46 <ynpvisitor3> Unfortunately the cam was nowhere OF at the time, And it was very dark
15:40:50 <Dave from B™> I got the impression it was OF itself but maybe I'm reading more into it than I should
15:41:22 <LindaG> They said his clothes and beer can were found near cone
15:41:35 <ynpvisitor6> There's multiple cones in the area.
15:41:50 <ynpvisitor6> The vent of OF isn't exactly what could be called a "hot spring" that one could fall into.
15:41:58 <ynpvisitor6> Blue Star - that could easily be fallen into.
15:42:08 <ynpvisitor6> Dunno.
15:44:18 <ynpvisitor3> They found his shoe,hat and beer can and foot prints and blood on the BW near OF In their search this morning
15:44:42 <ynpvisitor3> It is all in the article
15:45:36 <ynpvisitor6> But there are trails all around Old Faithful. I'm just curious if it was Old Faithful itself - they say "hot spring", not "Old Faithful Geyser".
15:45:41 <ynpvisitor6> That implies it was another feature.
15:45:58 <ynpvisitor6> Guess they're being secretive.
15:46:47 <Casey> How I read it, it sounds like no other feature is close enough to OF to satisfy my understanding of the other details.
15:47:24 <Dave from B™> I guess I'll go home and watch the local news tonight
15:47:34 <ynpvisitor79> Since rangers were not at the scene of the incident last night, they went out at first light this morning to investigate in the thermal area. They discovered several items near the geyser (the man’s shoe, hat, and a beer can), footprints going to and from the geyser, and blood on the boardwalk. Investigations continue today, including assessing any damage to the geyser cone. The results of th
15:47:39 <Casey> I admit I'm making assumptions to fill the blanks.
15:47:53 <Dave from B™> Speaking of which. It is time to go walk the dogs. Have a great evening everyone!
15:47:56 <Katie> What was that?
15:48:24 <ynpvisitor79> The results of the investigation will be forwarded to the United States Attorney’s Office for prosecutorial review.
15:48:26 <LindaG> What? Didnt see
15:49:37 <Katie> It was back in this area, but behind Giantess
15:49:48 <Casey> Periodic increases in steam from Giantess
15:50:23 <Katie> there was water briefly
15:50:31 <Casey> Or something behind it I guess. I didn't notice anything, but I haven't looked closely.
15:51:00 <Casey> There definitely was increased steam in that area though.
15:51:25 <LindaG> Maybe a boil?
15:51:44 <Katie> across the boardwalk - where I have cam aimed now - just right of center
15:54:30 <ynpvisitor90> Hello
15:54:47 <ynpvisitor3> On my recording (ihad to look 3 times
15:54:50 <ynpvisitor90> i gotta go that was fast:(
15:55:48 <Casey> Topaz spring is on the other side of the boardwalk. There is nothing eruptive over there that I can find. Teakettle and Vault are on the same side of the boarwalk as Giantess.
15:55:49 <LindaG> ynpvisitor3, so what was it?
15:55:53 <ynpvisitor3> } it was a puffof steam frompump that drifted and then rose in the area you are refering to
15:55:58 <Katie> Okay, what was that left and below the people?
15:57:36 <Eric> wow...I hoped they checked out chinese spring...that is a very hot pool
15:58:08 <Eric> are their any pools on the OF cone that could actually hurt someone?
15:58:19 <LindaG> Oh sorry bee didnt go for you
15:58:38 <Eric> ahh, it was waiting for me :-D
15:58:46 <Eric> BHI any moment :-P
15:58:50 <Katie> Darn it anyway. But I will still be watching. ;)
15:59:11 <Casey> Somebody make Giantess erupt. Giantess's steam phase is awesome.
15:59:14 <ynpvisitor47> Eric, yes, people have been burned breaking through near O.F.
15:59:37 <Eric> oh wow..didn't know the crust was that thin near the cone
16:00:14 <Eric> He said he fell into a pool though
16:00:21 <ynpvisitor3> Probably the runoff channels directly after an eruption
16:00:52 <LindaG> Ready katie
16:00:53 <Eric> What is the temperature of OF during eruption...180 or 190?
16:01:04 <Katie> All yours, Linda.
16:01:21 <Eric> Seems like runoff would have a hard time damaging you unless you somehow where right up on the cone and just bathed in it
16:01:30 <LindaG> Thx, frozen
16:01:40 <Eric> Linda broke it
16:01:40 <J. Protactinium> What's the altitude of the UGB?
16:01:50 <Katie> I did *not* break it! FAKE NEWS!
16:02:04 <ynpvisitor79> his words He told rangers that he had gone for a walk off boardwalk without a flashlight and tripped into a hot spring. He got himself back to his hotel room and called for assistance
16:02:06 <LindaG> Lol
16:02:10 <LindaG> I broke it
16:02:21 <LindaG> Its back
16:03:10 <Eric> Thanks for fixing it Linda :-D
16:03:20 <ynpvisitor51> i did not miss bee!?
16:03:24 <Eric> You get all the blame and the credit!
16:03:46 <Eric> Katie...I blamed Linda, not you
16:04:14 <J. Protactinium> Boiling point at approximate UGB altitude is 92 C / 198 F.
16:04:20 <ynpvisitor47> bet they were investigating this a.m. when cam was to be downbasin
16:04:20 <ynpvisitor3> Are the controls dropping out when it says webcam fail? I do not see the control stream nor radio dropping out
16:04:35 <Eric> Katie said yes, sometimes
16:04:40 <Eric> Not always
16:04:52 <lori lurking> Thermal water, hot spring, alcohol was involved, he may say hot spring and not know what he fell in to?
16:05:12 <Eric> probably true lori...he might not have gotten out of chinese spring
16:05:28 <Katie> 43 - I only lost control panel once, I think.
16:05:37 <Eric> I assume it was more than a foot, since they flew him out of there
16:05:50 <ynpvisitor3> thanks Katie
16:05:50 <Eric> meaning more than just breaking through
16:06:11 <ynpvisitor47> Eric thought they were hiding science. :P
16:06:35 <Eric> Law enforcement science I guess :-P
16:06:55 <lori lurking> I would think they would for any thermal burn, even a foot. He is in the burn unit.
16:06:58 <Eric> They do have crime labs
16:07:40 <Eric> Shrugs....not a doctor and don't play one on TV
16:07:44 <ynpvisitor15> Said a significant portion of his body
16:08:02 <Eric> ohhh, then definitely not a breakthrough, unless he made a really big hole
16:08:45 <LindaGp> Said it was a hot spring but then he was drinking
16:08:50 <Cooper> Linda, where are you seeing this?
16:09:15 <lori lurking> https://www.nps.gov/yell/learn/news/19043.htm?fbclid=IwAR2hlEJzK6nEWUG4CADqBp6KjOKknuKi1vRlqPSHx0Wd9upP7AD68u-DTVM
16:09:16 <LindaGp> Yellowstone made a news release. It's on facebook
16:09:38 <Eric> maybe bluestar or chinese spring or maybe he had no idea where he was and ended up near white or mugwump
16:10:28 <Eric> would be pretty easy to fall in up near the myriad group
16:10:37 <Eric> if you were wondering around at night
16:10:44 <Cooper> Thanks Linda
16:10:47 <LindaGp> I thought the clothes were found near OF CONE, but he said he walked into a hot spring
16:11:20 <Cooper> Linda, that would explain the peeps on OF this morning
16:11:49 <Eric> Well, I hope he has a speedy recovery before they take him to jail.
16:11:54 <LindaGp> Didn't see that but yes it would
16:13:09 <LindaGp> Could it have erupted while he was there
16:14:10 <Cooper> that is very possible
16:14:52 <ynpvisitor42> If he fell into Bluestar there should be a section of the rim missing probably.
16:14:52 <ynpvisitor10> He was near OF it said. It had to be a pool nearby. I don’t think he could have gotten those burns from OF spray
16:15:05 <ynpvisitor42> But probably not Bluestar because he'd be dead.
16:15:22 <Eric> I think he could have been standing over the cone butt naked and it wouldn't have burned him that bad...he might have been tossed about 20 ft away :-P
16:15:42 <Cooper> how hot is Chinnese?
16:15:53 <ynpvisitor10> Boiling
16:15:58 <Cooper> or East Cinnamon?
16:16:00 <ynpvisitor42> Both East Chinaman and Chinese are superheated/boiling
16:16:05 <ynpvisitor10> Not Chinese
16:16:05 <Cooper> ok
16:16:10 <Eric> Well, they did have to emergency fly him out 42...those are some super bad burns
16:16:31 <ynpvisitor42> Yeah, but Tripping into Bluestar would probably completely immerse him.
16:16:47 <ynpvisitor42> It's 5-10 feet deep.
16:16:55 <Eric> yes, both those pools seem unlikely...that is why I suggested myriad
16:16:57 <Cooper> yes, but Chinese, or ECS are possible.
16:17:13 <ynpvisitor10> I wonder if there is yellow tape anywhere, like a crime scene
16:17:23 <ynpvisitor42> He'd have to go WAY out there to get burned at Myriad unless it was in three sisters.
16:17:33 <LindaGp> We can track it down with the cam lol
16:17:56 <Eric> There just aren't that many springs near OF on the south side of the river
16:17:56 <ynpvisitor10> Well the report said OF and Myriad is nowhere near there
16:18:16 <Eric> He was drunk and that might be what he thought.
16:18:28 <ynpvisitor10> Plus the people out this morning so the cam couldn’t point there...
16:18:55 <ynpvisitor10> I would guess VEC folks will know the scoop
16:18:57 <Eric> On static they seemed to be about half way up the cone looking at something
16:19:00 <ynpvisitor47> I'd suggest everyone read it again.
16:19:46 <Cooper> says footprings to an from, and blood on the BW
16:20:06 <ynpvisitor10> It says near the cone of OF
16:20:12 <ynpvisitor42> There are two hot features there that we're forgetting. Split Cone and Teapot Geyser
16:20:17 <Eric> FYI, looks like SC was ie at 9:36 :-D https://geysercam.xyz/ugb-ynp/09302019/317.jpg
16:20:20 <Cooper> oh, yes
16:20:21 <ynpvisitor42> He could have tripped into one of those.
16:20:39 <ynpvisitor42> Although Teapot hasn't been seen in years and I don't know what the inventory has observed.
16:21:06 <Eric> Here is the image where they were looking this morning: https://geysercam.xyz/ugb-ynp/09302019/312.jpg
16:21:20 <Eric> guy in the yellow jacket, they spent some time there.
16:21:29 <ynpvisitor42> That looks like the area of Teapot.
16:21:32 <Cooper> Eric, to the left of SC?
16:21:58 <Cooper> 42, yes it does
16:22:18 <Eric> yes, left of SC
16:22:22 <Cooper> he was drunk, which leads the question of Steam Burns, or Liquid Burns
16:22:30 <ynpvisitor42> Definitely liquid.
16:22:35 <Cooper> ok
16:23:11 <Eric> yes, it was very cold last night, any steam would cool off very quickly
16:23:20 <ynpvisitor42> passive fumaroles would burn for sure, but only superheated fumaroles would scald you to the extent of removing enough skin to make you bleed.
16:23:21 <Cooper> oh, right
16:23:26 <ynpvisitor6> This is the sort of thing that rangers are there in the park to prevent.
16:23:44 <Eric> at midnight?
16:23:50 <Eric> Rangers can't be everywhere
16:23:51 <ynpvisitor42> LMAO
16:24:05 <ynpvisitor6> At Old Faithful itself? Sure they can.
16:24:19 <Eric> No they can't and shouldn't IMHO
16:24:23 <ynpvisitor10> Don’t be stupid 6.
16:24:31 <ynpvisitor42> Not interps anyways.
16:24:39 <ynpvisitor6> Shouldn't be stopping morons from hurting geysers? Ha ha ha.
16:24:41 <ynpvisitor42> And law enforcement is always on the road that time of night.
16:24:48 <Eric> let's not get into name calling please
16:24:55 <ynpvisitor10> LEs are in cars, not roaming the bw
16:24:56 <ynpvisitor6> Yep - looking for speeders well after dark.
16:24:59 <Cooper> I agree Eric
16:25:09 <ynpvisitor42> ynpvisitor6 DUI's actually
16:25:20 <ynpvisitor6> Speeders too.
16:25:23 <Eric> this guy was GUI
16:25:42 <ynpvisitor42> Not really. They're under directives. Lots of warnings and just flashing lights and keeping going.
16:25:42 <LindaGp> They missed the WUI
16:25:50 <ynpvisitor10> This guy will pay for the rest of his life
16:25:54 <ynpvisitor42> ^
16:26:01 <ynpvisitor42> Yup. He's gonna be in pain for a long time.
16:26:19 <Eric> Yep...take a picture of his crispy self and post it in the VEC
16:26:24 <ynpvisitor6> Sad to see folks not interested in having park personnel protect park features.
16:26:27 <Casey> I'm just glad drunken cone walkers always report there intentions at least 48-hours in advance so rangers no exactly where to be and when.
16:26:39 <Casey> please forgive the bad grammar
16:26:40 <ynpvisitor42> ynpvisitor6 I don't know what planet you're on that you drew that conclusion
16:26:46 <Eric> They should 6....but I don't think anyone said a feature was harmed
16:27:06 <Eric> this person just damaged themselves as far as I have read so far
16:27:13 <ynpvisitor6> Why aren't people upset at this?
16:27:40 <Casey> Close to midnight without a flashlight and practically a new moon. How did people not see this?
16:27:44 <ynpvisitor42> Ynpvisitor6 here's the blunt reality. If you want LE to patrol at night and other protective measures. Pay your taxes and write to your congress members to fund our park.
16:27:58 <ynpvisitor42> They are U-N-D-E-R-F-U-N-D-E-D
16:27:59 <ynpvisitor6> The park brings in tons of $ at gates. Watch 'em.
16:28:05 <ynpvisitor6> Not true.
16:28:15 <ynpvisitor42> Yes and that goes into the general coffers, not YNP's personal finance.
16:28:16 <Eric> Do you have any idea how big the park is?
16:28:18 <ynpvisitor6> If they choose to send their $ away, that's their choice.
16:28:26 <ynpvisitor42> *Facepalm*
16:28:32 <ynpvisitor10> There was no moon at midnight
16:28:41 <ynpvisitor42> And yet you're blaming us for this problem. Brilliant.
16:28:57 <Casey> Okay everybody, let's huddle up and soak in all that ynpvisitor6 has to share with us.
16:28:59 <ynpvisitor6> Strawman.
16:29:00 <Cooper> 6, believe me 2 things, 1. We are all upset at this, and 2. They are way underfunded with how many personnel they have to be everywhere.
16:29:01 <ynpvisitor47> Law enforcement in the basin in the daytime is rare.
16:29:08 <Eric> haha Casey :-D
16:29:08 <ynpvisitor10> You can’t argue with 6. Just talking crap to get everyone going
16:29:10 <ynpvisitor42> ^
16:29:55 <Casey> Days like this make me wish that I was brazen enough to post here anonymously
16:30:06 <Eric> lot's of steam on the hill
16:30:12 <ynpvisitor42> There are dozens of us Casey
16:30:20 <Eric> bh?
16:30:27 <Eric> woooopps
16:30:29 <Eric> ignore that
16:30:31 <LindaGp> Casey, we all should imagine the fun we could have
16:30:38 <Eric> I was still at 9:30am :-P
16:30:52 <Cooper> haha Eric
16:30:54 <Casey> It's not all anonymous posters of course. I apologize for the generalization ynpvisitor42
16:30:58 <Eric> Nobody is annoymous Casey :-D
16:31:07 <LindaGp> No Bh
16:31:12 <Eric> Everyone should know that.
16:31:16 <Cooper> Eric knows who everyone on here is
16:31:18 <ynpvisitor42> Says the guy who can look up the ips. lol
16:31:44 <Eric> Somebody has to keep the trolls at bay...that is why they pay me the big bucks
16:31:59 <Cooper> haha, Big Bucks=0?
16:32:04 <Cooper> :p
16:32:20 <ynpvisitor42> The real currency is the friends we make along the way.
16:32:25 <Eric> :-D
16:32:26 <LindaGp> of
16:32:33 <LindaGp> No of
16:32:36 <Eric> Yep, I was going to say...I get paid in emoticons :-P
16:32:41 <Kat> You're making $$ Eric? Please share! LOL
16:32:54 <Kat> :p
16:33:02 <Eric> Here is some emoticons for you Kat :heart::star::thumbsup:;)
16:33:12 <LindaGp> Kat, you didn't get your raise?
16:33:16 <Eric> Consider that your payment for the next couple months
16:33:19 <CraigC> busy bees here in chat
16:33:34 <Kat> Awwww - I'm touched! :heart:
16:33:41 <LindaGp> Buzz buzz buzzz
16:33:55 <ynpvisitor47> :$: actually is a dollar sign
16:33:55 <Kat> No - I always get left h ahaha

16:35:25 <Kat> Here's my pay - :):gt::bee::lion::daisy::castle::grand::bhi::sb::thumbsup: and all of you! :)
16:35:57 <Cooper> Kat, :grand::grand::grand::grand::grand::grand: there is your pay from me
16:35:58 <CraigC> Eric, I am curious about Delapidated, it has been seen, but on the GT map, it doesn't seem to line up with the view here, unless I am making a mistake
16:36:03 <LindaGp> 😃
16:36:48 <Cooper> Linda, :grand: only 1 Grand for you!
16:37:03 <LindaGp> Cooper, ☹
16:37:04 <ynpvisitor42> Dilapidated's steam should be visible coming from somewhere in front of that meadow behind the Lodge Cabins Craig.
16:37:33 <LindaGp> So that was the other steam over by cabins
16:37:38 <ynpvisitor6> Dilapidated is just to the left of Old Faithful.
16:37:49 <CraigC> ynpvisitor42, but the people on here are pointing out steam which appears in the meadow above and left of OF
16:37:58 <ynpvisitor42> Yep.
16:38:00 <ynpvisitor42> My bad.
16:38:16 <ynpvisitor42> Also Dilapidated is on the wrong feature on the GT map. Lol.
16:38:27 <LindaGp> So what is by cabins?
16:38:28 <CraigC> ynpvisitor42, that is what I wondered
16:38:40 <Kat> That was the discussion last evening. OK so it is left of OF from this view an up
16:38:59 <Kat> It;s a map error
16:39:50 <Kat> I was asking -it;s a map error?
16:40:56 <Kat> Who's covering Graham this evening?
16:41:02 <Cooper> Linda
16:41:07 <ynpvisitor3> Linda is OF like Hinze Catsup for you today
16:41:27 <ynpvisitor42> Fixed dilapidated, and by fixed I mean, close enough.
16:41:31 <ynpvisitor3> Heinz
16:41:33 <ynpvisitor42> Couldn't quite get the pin on the vent.
16:41:48 <ynpvisitor42> Wait. I'm stupid. Hang on.
16:41:51 <LindaGp> OF
16:42:55 <ynpvisitor42> There we go.
16:43:00 <ynpvisitor42> Dilapidated is now pinpointed.
16:43:15 <CraigC> who is 42?
16:43:51 <ynpvisitor42> The world may never know.
16:43:53 <CraigC> why do I feel like I am asking a question in Hitchikers Guide?
16:43:56 <Eric> Someone who knows the exact location of dilapidated :-P
16:44:12 <Kat> hahaha
16:44:18 <Cooper> 42, and one who has access to change GT maps
16:44:35 <Eric> nice pinpointing BTW :-D
16:44:39 <ynpvisitor47> brazen numbers
16:45:01 <ynpvisitor42> Thanks Eric haha.
16:45:17 <CraigC> I don't know who has GT powers... Eric, Will... who else
16:45:32 <Eric> I didn't realize there were so many holes out there.
16:45:54 <Eric> There are quite a few secret and double secret agents of GT
16:46:05 <ynpvisitor42> The big black dot next to the vent of Dilapidated is a pressure pool that was seen by researchers to be sympathetic to it's cycles and eruptions.
16:46:05 <Eric> Always be on the lookout
16:46:17 <Eric> ohh thats cool
16:46:22 <Casey> Don't forget the secret double agens
16:46:24 <Casey> agents
16:46:38 <Cooper> I am beginning to think that Bee went overnight?
16:47:11 <CraigC> where is the closest viewing location to see Delapidated
16:47:23 <CraigC> sp
16:47:36 <ynpvisitor42> The cabin area. There's a couple gaps where you can look up at it.
16:50:19 <CraigC> http://www.rcn.montana.edu/Features/Detail.aspx?id=9354
16:50:30 <CraigC> is that photo legit?
16:51:32 <ynpvisitor42> No.
16:51:49 <Cooper> 42, what makes you say that?
16:51:50 <ynpvisitor42> That's the pool that was marked as Dilapidated on the map before I fixed it.
16:51:52 <Casey> Does not look like the photo in Scott's book
16:52:15 <Cooper> oh
16:52:15 <ynpvisitor42> Cooper because I've seen pictures of Dilapidated in eruption by researchers that were close to it. That's not it's vent.
16:52:17 <CraigC> ok, zooming on the map, I can see it matches the old location
16:52:33 <Cooper> thx 42
16:52:39 <ynpvisitor42> RCN got quite a few things wrong which is what the geology dept is trying to correct with their new one.
16:52:48 <ynpvisitor42> "new one" meaning their updated inventory
16:52:55 <CraigC> no other images show up on google images search
16:53:52 <Eric> It would be nice if there inventory was "public" somehow, without being detrimental to off BW thermals.
16:54:18 <Casey> https://books.google.com/books?id=PMlgDwAAQBAJ&lpg=PP1&pg=PT240#v=onepage&q=dilapidated%20geyser&f=false
16:54:20 <CraigC> ynpvisitor42, do you think there is any way you could get an image to get for the GOSA directory?
16:54:31 <Eric> But that is probably a really hard thing to balance
16:54:43 <Casey> If you click the first section there you can scroll to a photo
16:55:04 <Kevin L™🌵> Dilapidated? Somebody talking about me?
16:55:19 <CraigC> Casey, thanks!
16:55:27 <LindaGp> :Kevin L™🌵, 🙂
16:55:51 <Casey> The photo has a caption "Although its modern activity is infrequent, the cone of Dilapidated Geyser implies a long history of eruptions" in the actual book
16:55:56 <Cooper> Haha Kevin
16:56:19 <LindaGp> Lc
17:07:16 <Casey> Dual, dual, dual!

17:38:44 <Casey> Have you been here at night Eric? It's at best a monologue.
17:38:55 <Kevin L™🌵> How about Dilapidated and Depression?
17:38:58 <Eric> Joe is always here at night...right?
17:39:25 <LindaGp> Kevin L™🌵, nada

17:39:45 <LindaGp> Nope, sorey
17:39:57 <Casey> I honestly don't know. I typically don't chat at night when I check on the cam. Not a lot of chatter though when I'm on.
17:40:34 <Kevin L™🌵> You get some interesting conversations about 0200.

19:03:18 <LindaGp> *sure I
19:03:29 <ynpvisitor107> Usually it is only the burst count that is posted from the cam, and some folks guess at Quit or Continue.
19:03:42 <LindaGp> Geez can't type tonight
19:04:04 <ynpvisitor107> You have it listed as a Grand start instead of a Turban start
19:04:06 <LindaGp> Ok ill leave it at that

19:22:02 <Cooper> Linda, no to me, or no to Kevin?

19:25:28 <Kevin L™🌵> Good Knight
19:25:37 <Kevin L™🌵> Thanks Linda.
19:26:29 <Kevin L™🌵> I think I spent most of my waking hours at a Dr office, bank, or lawyers office last month.
19:26:50 <LindaGp> ☹ that's a drag
19:27:15 <LindaGp> I'm still on that was a goodnight for cooper
19:27:32 <Kevin L™🌵> I think all lawyers, morticians, and bankers should be killed.

19:28:51 <BWaggs> Hi Linda
19:28:59 <BWaggs> Nice
19:29:08 <LindaGp> BWaggs, hi
19:29:09 <Kevin L™🌵> Knight play for real Wednesday the same team they played Sunday. It was an interesting game. Never seen a ref tackle a player before. Or a 10 minute penalty for a player.
19:29:46 <LindaGp> getting dark
19:30:18 <BWaggs> Saw the story about the crazy burn victim at OF last night... not good! Did the cam catch that?

19:30:36 <Kevin L™🌵> I missed that one.
